Why federal reports probably won’t point to aliens

The deluge of media reports from “60 Minutes,” The New York Times and others about UFOs (also known as Unidentified Aerial Phenomena) is difficult to make sense of.

Has the government admitted that UFOs are real? What are all those different blurry videos? What’s this UAP report that’s (maybe) coming in June?

I’ve been following the story for the past four years, and I’ll try to make sense of it. First, some context.

Since the 1950s there have been UFO enthusiasts, people who think that the reported sightings represent incredible new technology, possibly aliens, that, once studied, will elevate all of humanity to the next level — ushering in an era of flying cars, free energy, and possible human-alien cultural exchanges.

Many in the UFO community believe the government is holding back progress toward this dream by not sharing everything they know about UFOs. So, they attempt to lobby the government to fess up — something they refer to as “disclosure.”

Earlier this month, when President Barack Obama was asked on the Late Late Show about UFOs, he made a few jokes, then said: “There’s footage and records of objects in the skies, that we don’t know exactly what they are. We can’t explain how they moved, their trajectory. They did not have an easily explainable pattern.  And so … people still take (it) seriously, trying to investigate and figure out what that is.”

For many UFO fans this was a high point in a recent wave of what they see as confirmation that “disclosure” is just around the corner.

This wave started more than three years ago with the publication of a New York Times article “Glowing Auras and Black Money” about the existence of a semi-secret government program that investigated UFO sightings. The article was accompanied by two UFO videos, and a third came out a few months later.
